    Asked why de Soto is coming to New York, the Spokesman said de Soto will be here next week to brief the Secretary-General on the ongoing talks in Cyprus between the Greek Cypriots and the Turkish Cypriots.

    Two sides to attempt trade offs at talks

    Nicosia, Feb 7 (CNA) -- The Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot sides, after an hour-long meeting here today, are set to attempt some kind of trade off, in the context of their negotiations on the basis of a UN peace plan.

    President Glafcos Clerides and Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Dentkash had their last meeting this week, in the presence of UN Secretary General's special adviser Alvaro de Soto.

    According to reliable sources, the two leaders left today's meeting with the intention of trying, at their next encounter on Monday, to engage in some trade offs on points they wish to amend in relation to the UN plan.

    The UN has asked the two sides to try and reach an agreement on a comprehensive settlement by the end of February. Both sides have so far outlined points in the UN plan they want changed, including territorial adjustments. Alvaro de Soto has stressed that the balance of the plan and its philosophy cannot be upset by any subsequent amendments.

    The same sources have said that Denktash did not present any documents at the negotiating table today.

    The two leaders were accompanied by their respective advisers at the talks.

    Agreement on security would send correct signals, says FM

    Nicosia, Feb 7 (CNA) -- A positive response from Turkey to a UN call for agreement on security concerns would send the appropriate signals to the Turkish Cypriot leader with regard to a settlement in Cyprus, Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides has said.

    The minister said that a new version of a UN peace plan could be the last move of the recent increased engagement in Cyprus by the international community.

    Kasoulides also said that any changes to a UN peace proposal on a comprehensive settlement in Cypruus cannot tip the balance in favour of one or the other side.
